Group Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Jacksonville Humane Society. In January 2018, JHS will begin offering group dog walking volunteer opportunities on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 8-11 am. These opportunities require all volunteers to be at least 18 years of age or older, and require all volunteers to be able to volunteer independently, exercise sound judgment, stand, walk, bend, and crouch unassisted. Volunteers should also be able to manipulate 50-60 lbs. Groups should have at least 4 volunteers. The maximum number of volunteers we can accommodate is 12.


If you have questions about the essential capabilities for these activities, please ask before signing up. The volunteer office can be reached at
